West Ham apply for Rojas work permit

Honduran striker Roger Rojas has arrived in England where he is expected to complete a season-long loan deal.

KUMB revealed on Saturday that the 5'8" striker was on his way to England initially on loan but with an option to buy.

The move was confirmed late this evening [Monday] via the Twitter feed of Jack Sullivan, who posted: "Roger Rojas' work permit application is on Friday, loan with an option to buy. Fingers crossed! 21 goals in last 18 games. #decent"

Tegucigalpa-born Rojas has spent his entire career at Olimpia, for whom he has made in excess of 100 appearances and scored over 50 goals including three in his first three matches of this season.

He made his debut for Honduras in 2010 and has since gone on to represent his country 18 times - meaning that the issue of insufficient international appearances, which ended Colombian Duvan Zapata's hopes of joining West Ham, should not be an issue this time.
